TROOPER BASEBALL - The Sheridan Troopers advanced to the district tournament semi finals with an 18-2 win over Riverton Wednesday day.
Head coach Ben Phillips says it was exactly the type of start they needed.
Cameron Harnish went the distance on the mound giving up only two earned runs, he scattered eight hits and had eight strikeouts Phillips says Harnish was outstanding and really set the tone for the game early.
The Trooper bats continue to stay hot, Drew Adriaens went 3-5, hit two home runs and had seven RBI. Kalvin Eisenach also went 3-5 and Connor McCafferty was 3-4.
The Troops face Cody in the semi finals this evening and Phillips says they expect a good challenge from the Cubs.
